El seguimiento fue entre 4 y 38 meses. Purpose: To describe the surgical technique and to evaluate the clinical results of carrying out transcanalicular dacryocystorhinostomies using a diode laser DCR-TC , including the advantages and limitationss of this technique. Methods: 43 DCR-TC were studied and they were analysed using a prospective, interventional, non randomized and non comparative study. We used local and topical anaesthesia in patients with a clinical history of epiphora or dacryocystitis for nasolacrimal obstruction. A diode laser was used to effect a vaporization of the lacrimal sac, osteotomy and vaporization with coagulation of nasal mucosa. The mean duration of surgery was 14 minutes range 7 to 29 minutes.

Abstract: Acute dacryocystitis is an inflammation of the lacrimal sac and nasolacrimal duct, mostly secondary infection process, or senile duct stenosis, trauma, tumors, sinusitis, or chronic conjunctivitis and canaliculitis.
The age groups most affected are infants and elderly, especially women. Infectious agents most commonly involved are Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus beta-hemolytic. There are no epidemiological studies or history of national and local causative of this condition. Objectives: To determine the frequency of hospitalization, the age distribution by sex and prevalence of this disease, know the length of hospital employee and the treatment received by patients.
Methodology: The data required for the study was obtained from a review of clinical records of patients. Results: A total of hospitalizations eye made between June and December , were for dacryocystitis 5. The Conclusions: The incidence of hospitalizations for acute dacryocystitis is 5.
Dacryocystitis occurs mostly in older adults, whose age ranges are between 60 and 89 years, mostly female. The hospitalization time required is not more than one day to prepare for surgery, for the treatment of infectious event is performed as an outpatient.
Systemic antibiotic therapy conducted in patients who show no response to empiric therapy is cloxacillin. However, users may print, download, or email articles for individual use.
